Car and Driver Magazine named the 2017 Bugatti Chiron one of the 25 cars worth waiting for and for a good reason. The Bugatti Chiron is a 1,500 horse power supercar and only 500 of them are produced. The base price is firmly set at 2.4 million Euros, which makes it an stunningly expensive car, but that didn’t stop people to buy the first 200 prior to actual delivery of the first car.

The custom built Pagani Huayra 730 S 1-of-1 has been recently delivered to Los Angeles to Mexican movie producer and entrepreneur Alejandro Salomon. Below is a video showcasing the supercar and also a link to Alejandro Salomon’s Instagram account for more photos.
According to Topspeed, the “normal”Pagani Huayra sells for around $2 million, so this custom built version must be over this price point for sure.
First supplied to Turin-based Scuderia Subalpina, who ran it in the 1935 Mille Miglia. Likely to have gained the current 1500-cc motor for the 1938 race. Uniquely rebodied without cycle fenders and with a wider body before 1969, when Briggs Cunningham acquired it. Restored at some time, then static in the Rosso Bianco Collection for years; full re-commissioning is required. Various paint marks, drab interior, and disappointing engine bay presentation.
Despite its completely changed appearance, the car’s long-ago race history is sufficiently gilt-edged to justify the bid, a figure at least one other person was also nearly prepared to match on sale day. Will the new owner leave this car as it is today… or want to be a time traveller and re-enact its 1935 Mille Miglia appearance as recorded in period race photos? Either way, more money is due to make it go properly.
